Bitter Gourd Masala Curry is not only delicious, but it’s also incredibly healthy as well. It can be eaten with both, rice and chapati or roti.
The first step in making Bitter Gourd Masala Curry is keeping chopped tomatoes, minced ginger and cut onion pieces aside. Next, the bitter gourd is to be cut into small pieces, applied salt to and kept aside for at least 30 minutes, allowing the salt flavours to be absorbed, whereas the coconut is to be ground separately.
Next, add mustard seeds and broken red chillies, and when they splutter, add onions and fry them till they turn translucent. Now go in the tomatoes and ginger, which are to be fried until the skin of the tomato comes out. This mixture is now to be stirred constantly and fried before adding beaten curd, chilli powder, and turmeric powder. When the colour changes, water, salt and sugar is to be added to cover the pieces; close the lid and allow the bitter gourd to become soft on a low flame.
When the gravy thickens, add the ground coconut mixture and boil for a minute before removing it off the heat. Eat this delicious vegetable with rotis or rice.
